Well - didn't we put on a good show!!! I have to admit I was more than a little sceptical before the games started - expecting to experience the worst when it came to travelling to work and back, but that was all pretty good (mind you I did travel in really early!)
Just like all of my friends and colleagues, we didn't get any tickets in the ballot :-(
BUT.... managed to get some last minute tickets online so got to see a couple of events at the Olympic Park, so I thought I would share a couple of my photos of the Olympic Stadium and the Orbit with you. We didn't get to see any of the athletics and go inside the stadium, but it looks pretty impressive from the outside! And the other venues are pretty good too!
Personnally I think the BBC coverage of the games was absolutely fantastic - I don't think I've ever watched so much sport in my whole life! LOL! Roll on the Paralympics and lets hope that is as successful as the Olympics!
